Kristen Grainger & True North
On Saturday, September 14 at 7:30pm, join us as the award-winning Kristen Grainger & True North take the stage here at Open Space for Arts & Community!
Americana quartet Kristen Grainger & True North is emerging as a Pacific Northwest powerhouse of intelligent, memorable songs, lush instrumental and peak vocal performances. Their crazy-good picking and tight harmonies bare the mark of a band deeply rooted in traditional folk and bluegrass genres.
Fronted by award-winning singer-songwriters Kristen Grainger and Dan Wetzel, True North is rounded out with two Pacific Northwest bluegrass superstars Martin Stevens and Josh Adkins. Grainger is making a name for herself in songcraft, collecting accolades and awards at the Wildflower! Arts and Music Festival, IMEA, Telluride, Merlefest, and Kerrville songwriting competitions.
The band’s newest project, Open Road, Broken Heart, debuted at number 1 on the Folk DJ Charts for national radio airplay and has continued to stay in the top fifteen for the past six months on the Roots Music Report. Their 2014 release, Elsebound, spent 25 weeks on the Roots Music Report’s top ten (national folk charts) and was the number 7 folk album of the year.
On stage, True North exemplifies the most compelling aspects of live acoustic roots music: Storied songwriting, mad instrumental skills, and vocals that alternately bring you to tears or raise ecstatic hairs on the back of your neck.
